Oh yeah, I heard Grayfolded back in the day. That was some sick dark-star action right there.

I also don't doubt that Garcia and the boys have at the very least some skepticism, if not outright disdain for sampling. I guess what I'm trying to get at is more relative to Negativeland or the Flaming Lips (ever hear Zaireeka?).

I consider this a hip-hop innovation even though people like Cage did the same years before.

Right now I'm listening to acoustic Lazy River Road (94) on top of Caution (68). It's not like it comes together entirely in a synchronous event, but every few seconds it strikes gold.

i'll track down this Zaireeka that you speak of... regretfully, my knowledge of the flamming lips begins and ends with 'vaselene', and, ummmm, the band's appearence at the peach pit, all be it, after dark!

regarding the dead taking umbrage with sampling, i doubt it. they covered (sampled in a sense) way more tune's than your average garage/bar band. they were also at the forefront when it came to tinkering with midi. hunter was a master sampler in his own right.

it's all good! (except the midi stuff imho)

Dunno if you dinosaurs know of the band, but all you people who have Green Party meetings with Ralph Nader might know of the band... either that or i'm highly underestimating all you heads.. but surprisingly no one has mentioned it yet..

The late ska/rock/reggae band Sublime.. well.. Bradley Nowell (lead singer, guitarist too i believe) covered Scarlet Begonias.

Sublime...takes me back to my college days. Thanks for the memory, I'm listening to that on my way to work tomorrow!
